Thomas S. Whittingham, 71, a retired systems engineer for Eastman Kodak Co. in Rochester, N.Y., who grew up in Baltimore, died Friday of heart failure. A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. today at Pearce Memorial Church in North Chili, N.Y.

He is survived by his wife, Dorothy Whittingham; two daughters, Elizabeth Newhall of Rochester and Marlena Wetherwax of Hamburg, N.Y.; two sisters, Elsie Zimmerman and Olive Gassaway, both of Baltimore; and two grandchildren.

Milton K. Munitz, 82, who retired as distinguished professor of philosophy at the City University of New York, died yesterday of prostate cancer at his home in Scarborough, N.Y. Dr. Munitz, who joined the CUNY faculty in 1973, often discussed in his writings the philosophical implications of cosmology, which has sometimes been defined as an inquiry into the universe as a whole.

His 1957 book, "Space, Time and Creation," was praised by Henry Guerlac, professor of the history of science at Cornell.
